Champagne Living Primer #3 - surround yourself with like minded people

One of the keys to getting what you want out of life is to surround yourself with the right people. In the social media/blogging world I've been lucky to have some wonderful mentors. People like Katja Presnal of Skimbaco, Wendy Limauge of Sweeties Sweeps, Ava - Broad "A" from The Review Broads, and others have all helped me in different ways. Having people that you can bounce ideas off of, lean on in times of need, and of course be a good friend, all influence who you are and what you will become.

On the other side - think about how YOU influence the people in your world. By living up to your full potential, you have the power to influence others.

Yes, no matter what we're talking about, being friendship, work, or family it's all about relationships. This doesn't mean that you need to friend every Tom, Dick or Harry...pick and choose wisely who you surround yourself with. The quality of people in your life will help to shape your life.

Stay away from people who are negative or complain a lot. People who try to sway you from your goals are not people that you want to be around. Look around and see exactly who it is in your life that causes you problems and put those relationships on the back  burner to focus on people who bring you happiness. They're more likely to help you along your journey.

Oh, crumbs. I complain all the time. Need to work on that!

Naomi - you do not complain all of the time...silly girl. I ♥ you and if I could have made a comprehensive list of all of the important people in my life it would be pages & pages long.
